    Overall impression - Disappointing. The music is just too avant-garde to listen to or to play. Except for one piece that I bought it for - The Impressionist piece Serenade by Samazeuilh, and even that one has unjustifiable errors probably coming from a transcription of piano music into a range that...

    the guitar just doesn't have. How to explain a low Eb in the key of E or many descending 32nd notes that exceed the guitar's range. We need more than a nice type face - someone has to review the music for play-ability on guitar before publishing it.
